  1. 3.5GB of RAM is insufficient for moderate workloads

    Despite the best efforts from OSG, Windows Server still consumes a considerable amount of RAM even when stripped-down. Add to that the memory usage by an instance of a local SQL Server (when Azure SQL is inappropriate or too costly) it's easy to hit the 3.5GB memory limit and suffer disk thrashing.

    I would like to see the memory allocations doubled at each instance tier level, though you can retain the CPU core count. If doubling is not economically feasible please extend the "Memory Intensive" range to offer a 2-core, 7GB option ($140/month?).

    Question: why is memory doled out at…

    • Call when credit card expires

      Right now when a credit card expires, I only get an email warning me about it. They were going to my spam account, so I ended up getting my account canceled.

      It would be best if Azure were to call before canceling, since the cancellation brings down all resources in the account.

          • Provide a better interface to NODEJS servers and its modules

            For small server scripts it's okay but when you're developing a complex script server with some different modules, the interface doesn't help at all.

            • Azure database 無法連接

              大約台北時間 2015/05/14 上午12:30,突然無法用SQL Server Management Studio 連上azure database。

              UserID 和 password都正確,也不是防火牆設定或允許ip的問題,在12:30之前都還能正常連線,但突然就無法使用,顯示訊息如附件。

              • Azure Services Limits

                Please remove upper limits from all azure services! Amazon and Google don't have them, which means that azure doesn't shine in this case compared to them!

                  • You fix your training materials

                    I took a MS course in Azure 20-487. Absolutely none of the labs worked. I didn't learn anything.
                    How can I possibly recommend this technology to a client?

                            We have some legacy Windows 2003 servers we would like to use Azure Backup. We then plan on implementing servers in Azure and it would be nice to have the data available from the 2003 servers already in the cloud to make for an easier restore to the new Azure servers.

                                        • Add a way to seemlessly convert a blob-stored SQL backup file into a hosted SQL database

                                          The ability to backup a SQL database directly to Azure is great - nicely done! However, it's really disappointing to not be able to then immediately take that backup file and launch it as a hosted SQL database.

                                          All of the existing ways of doing that are awful. You have to convert it to some other format, heaven help you if you actually put a description in a field or used any of the diagramming since those have to be dropped, then upload that instead (or script the entire DB and send up all of the data). It's not just…
